Word for the day by Christian Education Forum
Annunciation to Virgin MaryEphesians 1:3-10
V3 “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ”.
1. We are chosen by the Father (vs.4-6)
Lord chooses before the creation of the world, He blessed us, and He predestined us in accordance with His pleasure and will. It is by grace alone that we are chosen by the Father to be holy and do according to His will.
2. We are redeemed by His blood (vs7, 8)
It is only by the blood on the cross, shed for us for the forgiveness of our sins. He has lavished on us with all wisdom and understanding. Our Lord's stamp is upon our body. We should know them, obey them and live by them. For they are life.
3. We are chosen for a purpose (vs. 9, 10)
Our life is to fulfill the purpose Lord has made us. Everything not only in heaven but on earth is made in its structure by Him and for Him and works only when it works in His way. If we try to live or work in some other way, it works to its own ruin.
Lord, our living God, by whom all things are made and all things will return to you, we are chosen by you, redeemed by your blood and put for a purpose, for you are my fulfillment and my fullness. Amen.
